We had a nice stay at Smile. I staff were all helpful and friendly. We were there in Monsoon season, so it was pretty quiet which was nice. Lots to do in the local area. Check out Jay Jay's. Good food and comfy chairs.

I had a mosquito net covering my bed so I didn't care that I woke up to poop on the floor. Better than in ...
... some odd and slightly resentful looks from the other guests, who were all fasting and off for early-morning colon cleansings (turns out its a pretty hardcore health spa), but didn't even have to have my colon cleaned out or my liver realigned or anything! She truly was one of the loveliest people I've ever met. She said to me she believes in Karma, so hopes if she looks after me maybe someone will look after her daughter. I hope someone does.
